[ARCHIVED] Westmont Approves Major Development at 63rd and Cass

Village of Westmont

Date Issued: July 23, 2018

On July 19, 2018, the Village of Westmont Board of Trustees voted to approve the plans for a new, major development located on the northwest corner of 63rd Street and Cass Avenue.  The business development project includes the new construction of a 36,000 square foot theater, a 47,000 square foot LA Fitness, and multiple outlots including a Raising Cane’s restaurant.

The intersection of Cass Avenue and 63rd Street is one of Westmont’s most prominent commercial areas and is the heart of the South Westmont Business District (SWBD).  “This project will help kickstart the entire business district on the south side of our community,” said Trustee Harold Barry III, chair of the Westmont Economic Development Committee.  “This project along with a few other developments that are coming forward represent over a hundred million dollars of investment in Westmont. It’s very exciting.”

The final steps of the property acquisition is expected within the next 30 days with demolition of existing structures to begin this fall.  The LA Fitness facility will be one of only two “Signature Clubs” in the Chicagoland area. The theater is expected to have 10 to 12 screens.  The project will allocate space for up to five additional businesses as well.

Businesses located on the corner of Cass and 63rd, including Walgreen’s, Burger King, and Italiamo, will be unaffected.

“This is the second major development project in the SWBD TIF district,” said Finance Director Spencer Parker.  “This project will also provide additional capital which can be further invested to spur even more development in the future.  This development is a continuation of the success that was first realized when Mariano’s opened after the TIF district was created.”
